National Monuments in Danger

We are down to the final days of the comment period!  Please, take the time today to comment on the fate of this national monument, any of the other 27 monuments on the Interior Department's list, or on the fate of all of them.  

To comment on the monument review process (due July 10, 2017):

Nothing much to add right now, especially after all the babbling over the last few posts.  I think I am tired, it's been a marathon getting through everything today!

But nothing like the work Brent Rose put in on his travels!  I am still envious that he had the opportunity to do this, even with the heat down there.

Another monument to save.  Let's learn about it, comment on it, and visit it (when temperatures cool down a bit)!
